Back at Home

I am glad to say we are back at home. James was discharge at 5:30 last night and was given all his meds so that we would not have to return today for our normal appointment. I am very excited to report as of 5:30am he took his last dose of steroids. He had a good night last night-he didn't wake until 5:15 this morning. He is still in a lot of pain from his bottom-he arches his back when I put him in his highchair because he doesn't want to sit down completely. They gave me some Tylenol with codeine to help manage his pain until his bottom heals. Please pray that it is a quick process and that the steroids would get out of his system fast. We are now in a holding pattern until next Wednesday to see if his counts are good enough to start part 2 of Delayed Intensification. Nana will be here on Friday to offer support and help us out. Thank you for your continued prayer and support.

Breath, just one hour at a time and I promise it will get better. We are 14 months into this so called journey and we still stop and beg God for peace. This is a special time, time that will be a blink in a few years, however, it will be such a part of your lives forever. Rest my friends, even for just a few minutes. You are winning, one day at a time. This day is complete, you have accomplished another. Rest.
